Laura’s Cheap Trick #85

Quick Home Made Snack!

You have been asked to bring a plate of cookies and you have no time.  But the thought of plopping down a bag or Oreo’s does not appeal to you.  This fast recipe will be a big hit, make you a star of home made treats and save you cash and clean up.

I speak of the Pretzel Turtles of course.  The recipe is simple:

Bag of Rolos or Chocolate kisses, Bag of pretzles, bag of nuts or m&m’s.  place an unwrapped rolo on a small pretzel, heat at 350 for 1-2 minutes the mush a nut or m&m on top.  Here are some links:

Chocolate Pretzels

Now for the Cheap Trick…you can easily snip the rolos in half with a pair of kitchen shears and place the cut side down on the pretzel.  Twice the number of treats, half the calories!
